Trudy and Bernie were our next door neighbors. They were wonderful people. They would keep a eye on Josh when he was young and Nancy would be working. Our granddaughters absolutely love Trudy and would walk down to her house to say hello. Trudy was always gracious to them. We are much better people having known them. Trudy now you can dance in heaven with your beloved Bernie and get ready for the next cannon shoot.
